On January 25th, lay leaders and interested clergy had the opportunity to gather via Zoom to hear the reflections of four people who have served in the office of Synod Bishop in other synods of the ELCA, including Andrea DeGroot-Nesdahl, Larry Wohlrabe, Peter Strommen and Peter Rogness. These panelists have brought their helpful insights and wisdom as we, in Southwestern Minnesota, look toward the election of a new bishop at our Synod Assembly in June. The panel responded to several questions about their experiences as Bishop. The moderator for this meeting, asking the questions, was Gwen Arneson, serving as chair of the Bishop Election Committee. Please visit the Bishop Election Webpage for more information about the election process as we discern together about the future for the ELCA and our future leadership.
